Holy crow: Attendees of next week's InfoComm 09 in Orlando will get to see NEC's ridiculously huge 43" wraparound monitor, the CRV43, apparently inspired by those curved cab driver mirrors. The $8,000 beast is going on sale this July and was designed for those who use two- and three-monitor setups, as it provides all the real estate without those pesky seams.
The carefully chosen photographic angles above make it look as if the CRV43 is a flatscreen, but the orthographic views tell a different tale:
Man--how much must this thing weigh? I can imagine setting this thing up, then watching as my desk collapses and the monitor crashes through my floor and the three below me, leaving neat, crescent-shaped holes in each.
